Back in September we learned that young popstars Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes of The Wanted had found true and lasting love and started dating. A couple of weeks ago, there were whispers that the pair’s relationship had cooled but because so many of us want desperately to believe in the power of true love, those whispers were dismissed as falsities (OK, maybe it was just me but I’ve been in a fragile place emotionally for some time now and I have to hold on to hope wherever I can find it, please don’t judge me too harshly). And so, it is with the heaviest of hearts that I must pass along the information that Ariana and Nathan’s love affair has, in fact, come to a sad end. There is nothing to believe in anymore. Love is truly dead.
Nariana is no more. Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes have split, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. The singers, both 20, broke up a few weeks ago, one insider tells Us. “They just weren’t into it anymore.” Us first broke the news that Grande and Sykes were dating back in August after releasing their duet, “Almost Is Never Enough,” for the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. They then confirmed their relationship status via Twitter in September after the two were caught on camera getting cozy together at Disneyland. “So, I guess it’s obvious now . . . thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I’m so happy #butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana,” wrote The Wanted singer. “He’s the sweetest. He’s amazing. I have to say, he’s one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever heard in my life,” the “Popular” singer gushed to Access Hollywood in a September interview … A source close to the boy bander, meanwhile, tells Us the couple “hardly ever saw each other” and are currently on a break. The iCarly star, meanwhile, hinted at the possibility of a split during a radio interview with Florida’s 93.3 FLZ last week. “You’re a little behind,” she responded when asked about her boyfriend. “We’re really good friends,” the singer with the powerhouse vocals added.
Blah. If these two can’t make love work what hope is there left in the rest of the world for us single folk hoping to find our happily ever afters? Sigh. Oh well, I guess Ariana can just move forward with her career and hopefully find another young man to share her love with. Nathan can fade back into obscurity and take his boyband The Wanted with him into oblivion. Mayhaps Ariana can date one of the guys from One Direction? Now that would be a tween romance worth paying attention to.
